.

Though this school does produce good dancers and there are happy children, new parents needs to be warned. Owner and the main teacher of the school, Lori Ardis, likes to play favorites.
If the child does not grasp a ballet move, her method is to ignore the child until child succeeds(only then the teacher praises).
Huge attention is paid to hair buns (you must use lots of hair gel for EACH lesson, so that girl's hair is like "hard plastic") - teacher will make sure this is achieved by constant reminding, emails, etc. to parents and students.
Parents cannot approach the teacher freely as the teacher prefers email, and forces parents and children to whisper when talking. If the child is not whispering, she cuts the conversation off completely.
Minor behavior accidents can be presented up by teacher in a way, that parent is sure to feel that their child is the worst in a class.
If the families are able to go with this quite strange role model, they will succeed. I know many parents who started this school and then were disappointed with the teacher's personality and left.
